MPI Winter tire Program

MPI Winter tire Program

Car accidents are never a pleasant experience, and many happen in Manitoba during the winter months. One way to reduce the risk of an accident in the winter is to trust the rubber that you drive on. Swapping to dedicated winter tires can seem overkill if you don’t already have a set, but once you make the switch, you’ll never think twice again.


Luckily, Manitoba Public Insurance has a Winter Tire Program that offers Manitobans a trustworthy and affordable option when making their purchase.

MPI Winter Tire Program


MPI’s Winter Tire Program allows eligible Manitobans to receive a low-interest financing option when purchasing a set of winter tires for their vehicle. The special financing rate is prime plus 2%, on up to $2,000 per vehicle. MPI says that this rate has a term between 1 to 4 years and a monthly payment withdrawal day. This rate can only be applied to qualifying winter tires and associated costs from participating retailers.


Payment Processing

The payment process for this program will start at your chosen retailer. Once approved, the first payment will be withdrawn from your account 1 month after the loan has been fully processed. This means, at the time of installation, there is no payment required.



Winter Tire Program Eligibility


To enjoy the special offers from the MPI Winter Tire Program, there is a set of requirements you must fulfill.
  • Must be an individual Manitoba Public Insurance customer (not corporate)
  • Must purchase a set of qualifying winter tires for a passenger vehicle or light truck registered under your name
  • Must have no financing restrictions or outstanding payments on your MPI account


Basically, if you are a Manitoba Public Insurance holder for your own vehicle, chances are that you are eligible to participate in this program.
**The Icon**

When looking for a set of winter tires to buy, look for this symbol. This indicates that the tire is endorsed by trusted parties and is used by MPI to approve its winter tire selection. Dilawri’s Crown Toyota carries the largest selection of winter tires in town and can help you choose the right tires for your needs.
